I'd like to see what some bigger primaries do for those number, just for referrence. Man - I still can't believe those numbers! I may not even need a Z28 now, LOL. OK - yes I do WOW!

Awesome numbers. Same boost level as before? ~70+rwhp and ~+80rwtq is a lot of gain from just longtubes.

Radz Called it... 600hp...




Damn man... and I don't have to go forged right off the bat either. That saves me some money...

Oh boy... How do I convince the wife that our kids don't really need to go to college...

Between you and I (ok -everyone else) it sounds like a lot to me too, but with SW running 2" primaries on one of their versions, I'm not 100% suprised. I've been quoting the latest GMHTP issue where they added ARHs (1 7/8s I think) to a Procharged G8 (OEM longblock with SLP 1.85 rollers) and they gained like 60+ RWHP. That was the L76, not this LS3. It's my understanding this LS3 cam has a little more lift than the 'Vette too, so maybe that's why it seems so much too

I'd feel better after seeing more numbers, but even if they're within 20 RWHP, all I have to say is WOW It's still not going to be as durable as your GT500 bottom end, but that's still really good, IMVHO.

True, the car is new, but the LS3 has been around for awhile. I'm glad to know I can get the power up where I'd like it to be once I take delivery without having to go the trial-and-error route.

Ahh, you did an edit. I knew there had to be just more than headers involved for those gains. What were these few others mods?

LOL,

I checked and it seems like 415hp is the norm for a stock gt500, so for 10k you can have around 120 more ponies than a stock gt and be right around the same price tag with a 3 year warranty.

Not bad, that as big of a difference in hp as a gt vs ss.

You're way low, friend. Typical 2007-2009 GT500's make more like 430-440 to the wheels on a DynoJet. I have yet to see one make less than 425rwhp, stock.

I don't know that I'd want to drive around on 600 RWHP anyways. It's good to know there's a lot more in reserve if I feel the urge to push it.

Were the first runs at about 7 psi?

Yeah, but that car's built around all that power - top-to-bottom.

10 PSI is rebuild territory...if your that serious, you need to pull the motor, install forged blower pistons (dished), and at the very least, better rod bolts, install head studs, an 0.51 head gasket, then make sure you don't run out of fuel, and get the tune spot on. Otherwise @ 10psi your rolling the dice...especially if your backyard tuners start this, there will be LS3 guts all over America's Highways.

it would be interesting how TVS vs turbo would play out...
